Subject: replaceCategoryLinks misplaces featured article links
Original description:
I don't know if this is a known problem, but the function replaceCategoryLinks in pywikibot/ moves featured/good article templates \(e.g., \{\{Link FA|en\}\}\) above categories, although these templates are usually placed between categories and interwiki links. This has caused problems in one of the bot scripts that we use in the Finnish Wikipedia.

I am attaching a patch proposed by zache.

Since interwikis moved to Wikidata and Link FA/GA/FL/etc. will move to wikidata in one month, this bug is not important

On the Finnish Wikipedia, these templates are deprecated and have been completely removed from the main namespace:

While this specific case mentioned in this bug is basically invalid now, there may be other templates which should appear after the categories on some wikis....?
If nobody can think of other examples, we can close this.

The Portuguese Wikipedia still has many articles transcluding such templates.

They are not deprecating them because they need a replacement for its functionality (T72209: [Task] Create a special page to query for badges).

Templates on mentioned wikis were removed and no other templates were found out to be misplaced in more than 2 years. Feel free to reopen if any template will be affected in future. The only similar issue has got its own task: T151541
